2/187 April Cottage


House. Probably C17 in origin, alterations of the C20. Whitewashed rendered cob on
stone footings ; thatched roof, hipped at right end ; 2 rear lateral stacks.
Plan: Single depth main block, 2 rooms wide, with a central passage ; 1960s rear
addition. The relationship between April Cottage and Brookfield (q.v.) adjoining at
the left (south) is not clear. They appear to be one build and may originally have
been one house. The river Kenn flows adjacent to the right end of the house.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front with a front door to left of centre
into a passage. Plate glass C20 windows in timber frames.
Interior: Modernized. Timber panelling said to survive behind modern wall plaster on
party wall with Brookfield (information from owner).
Roof: Straight principal rafters visible on first floor, apex not inspected at time
of survey (1987).
